Today we’re going to be talking about a snus product for the American market: Camel Snus Mellow! Camel Snus comes with 15 pouches per can, which are around 0.6 grams each. I’m not sure what the nicotine content is exactly, but I’ve seen it listed online as around 1.5mg/g. So, we’ll just call it “regular strength”. The flavor description for this one says, “Camel Mellow Snus has a smooth tobacco flavor with elements of sweetness. This snus has a slim white pouch.”
One thing you’ll notice about Camel Snus is that it comes in more of an oblong can – a big difference from the round cans we see with Swedish Snus or American moist snuff. The aroma is tobacco centric; it comes through with a light spice to it and a touch of sweetness. The portions are the long/slim type, but only 0.6 grams in weight. So while they are about the same size as other slim snus portions, they’re much lighter in weight. They do seem to be a little dryer than a regular Swedish Snus white portion. The flavor of this one is a sweet, tobacco centric flavor. The tobacco flavor is quite subtle, and accompanied by some sweetness and a little spice. It is, as the name says, mellow. The flavor, on average, seems to last about 30 minutes. As far as the nicotine level goes, it isn’t too strong; it feels to be about as strong as a mini portion snus.
If you want to try a Camel Snus product that isn’t mint or wintergreen, Camel Mellow is one of the better ones to try. Many people started with it in 2009, and it’s been a mainstay in the Camel Snus line since it’s launch!
